FreeFixer is a general purpose removal tool which will help you to delete potentially unwanted software, such as adware, spyware, trojans, viruses and worms. FreeFixer works by scanning a large number of locations where unwanted software has a known record of appearing or leaving traces. The scan locations include the programs that run on your computer, the programs that starts when you reboot your computer, your browser's plug-ins, your home page setting, etc.
FreeFixer does not know what is unwanted, so it presents the scan result and it's up to you decide if some file should be removed and if some settings should restored to their default value. Please be careful! If you delete a legitimate file you may damage your computer. To assist you when determining if anything should be removed you can find more information at FreeFixer's web site for each item in the scan result. You can for example see what other users chose to do in the same situation.
- When scanning the LAN proxy settings FreeFixer will now figure out the path to the file containing the proxy code, if the proxy running on the local machine. If the proxy is running as a service inside svchost.exe FreeFixer will also display the service name in the scan result.
- Improved performance in the FreeFixer scan by caching results from the process enumeration. This decreased the scan time by approximately 35%. The number of memory allocations was reduced by 50%.
- Fixed bug in the Autorun.inf files scan which occured when there was a network mount on the local machine, pointing to a target that was currently unavailable. This resulted in none of the autorun.inf files being checked and an error was reported in the scan result.
- Fixed bug where some Internet Explorer toolbars appeared without a path in the scan result.
- Fixed bug where removing a search provider that was currently set as the default, resulted in Internet Explorer popping up a message saying "A program on your computer has corrupted your default search provider setting for Internet Explorer". The bug was fixed by setting Bing as the default provider.
- Fixed bug in the Internet Explorer BHO and Internet Explorer Toolbars scan that reported MSCOREE.DLL instead of the interesting file.
- Fixed bug where FreeFixer did not find driver files using the "SysWow64" constant in the registry. For example: ImagePath=SysWow64\drivers\AsIO.sys
